New Product Announcement!

We are debuting these super cute gift sets at the Adrian Orchards Harvest Fest next weekend (October 1-2).

The Bluesblossom coaster with the coordinating mug is filled with 2 packs of gourmet hot chocolate, Hershey’s kisses, and peppermints.  These would make a great gift for an office exchange, secret santa, or teacher gift.  We would love to customize these to make a unique gift!

The Bluesblossom coaster with a martini glass filled with chocolates and peppermints and comes with a recipe for delicious chocolate martinis. We can completely customize these gift sets with different types of glasses, cocktail recipes, coasters, etc. They would make a great favor for a Bachelorette Party or Girls Night Out!

Right now we only plan on selling these at craft festivals or taking custom orders for them.  Remember, these are completely customizable.  We love working with our customers to create the perfect gift! Pricing will vary depending on the contents of the gift set but we are focused on creating affordable options and will be happy to work with you.  We still need to figure out shipping options so please contact us for more information.  If you’re in the Indianapolis area we can discuss delivery or pick up options to save you money on shipping!

What is Etsy?

Since opening our shop on Etsy, the response from our friends and family has pretty much all been the same…

Us, “We just opened a shop on Etsy!” Friends and Family, “Great!  What is Etsy?

Our general response is full of a lot of “umms” and pauses but basically sounds a lot like this, “Well, it’s sort of like Ebay in that people have their own store and sell their own items only everything is handmade and has a set price.”  Truthfully, that answer doesn’t do Etsy any justice.     

So just what IS Etsy?

Etsy is an online marketplace that connects makers and buyers from all over the world.  It can be difficult for artists and crafters to find consumers interested in buying their handmade goods.  For consumers, it can be difficult to find unique products.  Etsy is the platform where these two groups meet.  Because of Etsy, artists and crafters all over the world are able to continue to create and consumers are able to connect directly with the artist/crafter and purchase a product that they couldn’t find anywhere else in the world.  We think that is pretty cool.
